Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Help for a fellow Head... prayers and suggestions

Well its time to call on all the KIND souls of the room to help again.

One of our brethren, 52 years old has been diagnosed with the Big C. He's a close friend since college and a really good man. I actually got him a job recently to do some work for my new employer and now he can't even do that because of his health.

I am devastated by the news, even though I am an active Hospice volunteer, this one hits to close to home. How and why does this happen? a father a husband an asset to his community, ours included.

Its liver and esophageal cancer, so if ya have good stories to share I can use them, if not good for that, tell me how ya help some get through this. Just spoke with my brother in law who is a leading GI, the prognosis is dim.

THANKS!!!

7:51 pm mst Few hours later*S* spent some time meditating and listening to the Boys, what else!!!!
The response I got are all awesome, there really is something special about the bond we share here and "on the road together". I've spent the last 27 years blessed after the bus, I'd surely give my friend the rest of mine to let him have'm with his family. But that won't happen so I have to find a way to make his time as easy as possible.

I trained with some Tibetan Healing Masters but they seem to have left me circle too, so now its time for the student to use what he's learned I guess. I don't understand the reasons why for this to happen to my friend or how I'll be able to help but I will give it all I can and listen to the thunder shouting "I AM IIIIIII AMMMMMMMMM"

I don't know if he can win this battle but I believe he can do live it with courage and dignity and let the chips fall as they may.


I can't say it enough, THANK YOU ALL AND LONG LIVE THE GRATEFUL DEAD, nothing left to do but smile smile smile.

Scheduling a group meditation/prayer is worthwhile, if those involved are supportive of such! (Check out the Furthur Forum thread on the group prayer for Mindreader's wife that happened around the hearts of our world on Sunday night at 9 PM Eastern).

2nd , and & this is a long shot. try the search on pubmed for benfotiamine & cancer (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=benfotiamine%20cancer). It gives 5 articles

Benfotiamine, a B-1 provitamin, has been shown to do something else as well: reverse nerve/kidney/eye damage from diabetes-it doesn't alter the course of diabetes but it apparently fixes the associated nerve damage.

You & your friend are in my prayers.

I don't know if this will help you or not, but your story reminds me of a particular reviewer here. Who, in a very similar situation to your good friend, has shared his thoughts in some very moving and poignant show reviews that he has written here. I think he's gone now. He has not posted a review in over a year, but perhaps reading some of his words will help...


"So I am feeling a little tired a few months back ... i get my sorry ass into the doctor's office ... where the old codger orders up a s--tload and a half of tests .... One of them little f----ing tests come back and informs me that prostate-cancer has me scheduled to meet with the big Banana-Head in the sky ... Good news is... medicines have delayed my final ride off to happier hunting grounds for at least a year

So blah blah goes the story of the wandering sage ... Here on the Grateful Dead archive I give my most sincere thanx for the chance to have lived ...

Why this damn show makes me cry.... I do not know.....

I wish I was a headlight on a northbound train........no need to wish anymore... I am one... to see how much bu--sh-t consumed me....I should have mastered learning to love ... I can see that now.... i am now willing to love

So much of my life was suffering....Listening to the Dead was one of those simple pleasures for me...the music does something to me that all these painkillers will never be able to do....

The Dead make something inside me shake and rattle...and roll and pop and bop.... I don't give a shit that I am dying when I listen to their music.....

Yeah I am pissed I gotta shove off....I have the cutest grandkids...(i AM 52) ... One of the little punks loves to work with tools.... Him and me just sit and play with all the crap I have collected over the years...He becomes 52 and I become 5 ..... He has good workworking hands.....The other two schnookie-butts are just as special to be with.....

I got a big-ass basket filled up with old harmonicas, drumsticks, and such.... We get the old guitars down and pretend we are the Dead ... They usually fight for the instruments when we jam with the Dead, even though there are tons to go around.... We all copy PigPen...his "Now, just wait a minute... Now wait a minute....Hold up now..."

So anyway, I got a freight train running through my head right now...... time to just shut-up and listen to the show....

Thanx archive people..... may all that is good and wholesome nurture that which wholesome and good..... I'll see you on the other side....."


Best of everything to you and your friend, and thank you to JustAFloatingSage, wherever you are...

His reviews really touch me every time, too. It's particularly moving that his screen name sounds so very much like one that could have been created by a wise old friend of mine who died suddenly and tragically on a beautiful day in the Colorado mountains. One of the last things he said was, "It's days like these that I live for."

Bus, your friend's story and the responses here bring tears to my eyes. Of course I have no words of wisdom; it's something we'll all face someday, like every person who has ever lived, but he already knows that.

Something for you and your friend. The lights come on after about a minute.

I happened to read this review before I spent a lot of time listening to the recording (09/20/70, I believe) he posted it on. When listening to the show, it was always in the back of my mind thinking about this person who was so touched by this show that he felt it necessary to share his story with the community at that time. I hope JustAFloatingSage sees this wherever he is and know that I am thankful for him sharing his thoughts and feelings for he will be forever be associated with this show in my mind. May you be at peace wherever you may be.

buscameby, you and your friend will be in my thoughts. This is a situation that is all too familiar to too many of us. The following quote was given by a former college basketball coach and truer words have never been spoken.

"Cancer can take away all my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart and it cannot touch my soul. And those three things are going to carry on forever." -Jim Valvano

Cliff - His reviews get me every time. I guess, in some way, he achieved an awful lot. By planting the seed in those who read his words that life is precious, and by offering a glimpse of the wisdom which accompanies impending death, he has given us a gift.

Best of luck to you and your good friend Bus.

The link to watch the lecture is on the left side toward the bottom. As a cancer survivor myself(2 years remission), hearing Randy speak reminds me everyday that our lives here and now are really for truly "living". Seizing the moments in our day to day life's becomes harder and harder in these hectic times. I recommend the video to everyone who reads this. Peace be upon you and your loved ones.

I will start off by saying that I doubt the protocol I outline will cure every case or every kind. However, it is safe, cheap and very effective. It is known to be great for liver, bowel, pancreas and metastasized cancers. It is expected to be effective on a wide range of cancers but there has not been enough research to fully explore this. The protocol is based on a new understanding of why some cancers flourish.

This protocol is excellent for those waiting on a list to see a cancer specialist, for those who have been told nothing can be done and for those who's conditions have infected them past the point of treatment. It is suspected that chemotherapy may hinder the beneficial effects of this protocol due to the immune weakening effects of chemo.

Everyone gets cancer in their lifetime. According to John Hopkins University we all fight it off about 8 times in our lives. Cancer occurs, the immune system does it's thing and poof, you never even knew you had it.

Sometimes cancer can be an "organism of opportunity" meaning that it is not usually a problem but it becomes one when the opportunity strikes such as when you have a dysfunctional immune system or when your immunity is stressed or low. Reasons for dysfunctional immunity can be things like low vitamin and minerals, genetic factors, contamination by certain poisons, high stress, etc etc. Examples of other organisms of opportunity is pneumonia or staph bacteria. They are always present in everyone but can only do harm when they get the "opportunity". Sequestered TB is like this too. You're good until your body lets down it's guard.

Perhaps a person can have a normal immune system but have cancer develop because the cancer is very strong (perhaps it is a strong DNA mutation or multiple cancer genes have been expressed, for example).

The idea behind this approach is to boost the cancer fighting department within your immune system so that your immunity is the one doing the job of killing the cancer. It knows how but just needs the strength to pull off the job. It needs extra super support. Much like a well trained army going into battle, the immune system simply needs to be equipped with some extra powerful abilities.

86 year old Katherine had cancer for an extended period of time. Doctors were always carving out pieces of bowel etc to keep her going and had been for 20 years or so. She got to the point where she could no longer have stuff removed and her cancer had spread to her lymph, pancreas and various random places in her body. She had developed a large tumour in her liver and thus it was time to go home and die. This woman was very skeptical of anything that mainstream medicine could not provide. However, she started taking 50mg zinc chelate with food, 100mcg selenium and 800mg raw thymus gland per day. After 5 days she noticed her asthma had improved and her allergies were. Based on this she kept taking them and went back to the hospital 3 months after her last visit for her scheduled cancer re-check. Her son had to go to the hospital and identify her as the person she was because the cancer was all completely gone and the MD's refused to believe it was the same person. She recently died at age 101 and she never had her cancer return during the whole time she had recovered.

Sandy had developed cervical cancer (cervix, not neck) and had to go back to her MD for lasering. That appointment was a harsh 4 months away (yay, Canadian health care) so she also took this combination of products. The MD told her when he went to laser that there was nothing there to laser and that she did not need the procedure.

In both these cases you can believe that it was spontaneous remission or you can think, "hey, maybe I should give this some more thought".

If someone has at least 3-6 months to live, I would think about this. This is info that isn't widely known but not because of any reason other than no one makes money on it. The zinc and selenium are about 6 bucks each and the thymus is about $20-$25. None of it can be patented (thank God or it would be 1000 times this cost). Keep this handy, you may need it one day.



taken from another site, I did not write this, but I have heard about this several times from independent sources, what the hell, right?

My and my family's prayers will be with your friend, family and you. Lost a teacher at the age of 33 just a month ago and I know there are no answers that make sense. That seems to me to be the answer...we just don't get to know why things happen. Doesn't seem fair, but that is what it is. People of faith believe that there is an answer, those who don't (No inference here) believe that these things just happen. Either way, no answer, just learning to deal with it.

Pain management, seek anything that gives peace seem to be the things that help most with cancer. Whether terminal or not, it becomes the individuals decision on a wide variety of things and I believe it is our role to advice, but ultimately support.

There are days when I do wish I was a headlight on that train.

I'm sorry buscamebuy. I have been through this and looking back, there were not too many good stories to recount. No great intertwining of souls and the richness and glow that brings. Damn right you fight, and try to be a human being through the process of declining health and the factory system that is cancer treatment. And it ends where all of our conclusions do. Faith is where I go next for answers or comfort.

btw- Tell your friend, if you have a good day, cancel everything and live.

All Coloradoans should be reminded of this true story.

Colorado has one of the highest prevalence rates of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the country: 9,500 people in our state have MS. The disease not only affects those diagnosed, but it impacts the lives of spouses, parents, siblings, children and caring friends. The result is that 72,000 people in our state are directly affected by the disease.

Funding is always an issue. Here's an excellent list for making donations to Colorado foundations.

There is a lot of research that shows that cannabis can inhibit certain cancerous cell growth and indeed kill cancerous cells. There are no dangerous side effects and it will at least restore appetite and relive nausea caused by the harsh chemicals that the doctors will recommend. If you haven't already seen it watch "Run From the Cure" it'll give you a good perspective. Also look up Phoenix Tears. they provide free cannabis oil pills for cancer patients. I'm not saying don;'t follow doctors' recommendations, just supplement it with a harmless product that may prove top be very beneficial.

Hey Bus--sorry to hear this...I have lived thru it, having had it, and lost family to it, so I know the feeling.

First and foremost: echo PG's comments on pain mge approaches. Make sure he does not get some old fart doc/oncologist, living in the past, with approaches to treatment that only focus on cure (ie, pain mge should be the # 2 concern; the last days/months/yr should be as pain free as possible, and with modern methods, can be achieved).

Don't get me wrong--experimental approaches, anything possible along those lines, should be considered, with an aim toward remission (but these two forms--having it in both spots--are very tough ones to beat).

Second, of course no help on "why", but look to whatever arena in which on a daily basis there is some activity, however small, in which the person can "make a difference", even if it seems trivial, almost a time-waster, since every moment "counts" now more than ever. All I am driving at is that the smallest of opportunities in which the individual experiences some connection with others, some means by which they can assist in some small way to ease someone's burden, or make them happy...listening, reading, shopping--you know the drill vis-a-vis Hospice, helps take them to a different place in which the focus is not on them and their plight. Tough to implement depending on the current state of functionality, but that's all I got...

Sorry, man--wish there was some canned cliche I could provide, one that didn't sound like exactly that...

Hang in there.

I knew you were in or nearby the Denver area. So, you're saying your friend was downwind of, and adjacent to Rocky Flats nuclear trigger production plant. I knew some people in that situation. I vividly remember the day the FBI busted Rocky Flats in the late 1980s. They shut down that huge nuclear haz-waste zone forever. I was living nearby, on top of Coal Creek Canyon at the time, in Wondervu. Lots of people in that canyon worked there.

A few miles out east, we had the infamous Rocky Mountain Arsenal. It's best known for its chemical weapons production. It became a gigantic haz-waste zone with scores of EPA superfund cleanups. Today, both places are "wildlife refuge [haz-waste] areas."

This pull is for your friend - run him out in the Cold Rain and Snow mp3 track - a beauty from their first show at Red Rocks in 1978! The beat sounds a bit like the Rolling Stones. Remastered by MOTB (aren't they in Colorado?). Great AUD Sound! I also recommend the Sugaree they played during their first show at McNichols in 1977.

stratocastor recommended the following post. IT WORKS, REALLY!! Those 3 things taken together are fantastic. Mu granny had liver cancer and it went away in 3 months and she was told to go home and die!! Another friend has her lung cancer dog on it now and the dog is getting WAY better! It's been like 3 weekds. A female friend developed cervical cancer and it worked on that too. She went to get them lasered but they said it had disappeared and that she did not need treatment.
